Jump Trax's menagerie of inflatables plays host to kids of all ages for parties and open-play sessions. Sock-footed youngsters can explore two climate-controlled arenas filled with bounceable attractions, such as Spongebob’s pineapple house and a prehistoric obstacle course overseen by a tyrannosaurus rex. Other activities abound, such as tyke-sized push cars, a slide shaped like the Batmobile, or an inflatable Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. To prevent the inflatables from becoming vitamin D deficient, Jump Trax's location is used for block parties, barbecues, and birthday parties. Their menu consists of pizza and sodas, as well as goodie bags. Check out their FAQ for more info.

Lorenz Island Kuisine?s roots are immediately visible on its ceiling, where a Jamaican flag proudly hangs. A few more steps inside the warmly lit eatery and more roots begin to show. There?s the orange walls with green trim, and the smell of Jamaican food wafting from the open kitchen. There, the kitchen staff cooks curry goat and plates crispy, brown pieces of jerk chicken. Other dishes include oxtail, plantains, rice and beans, beef patties encased in flaky crust, and almond cake made with rum and topped with icing. Many of the dishes double as loveable characters in the eatery?s recipe book.

Cape Cod Fish Share strives to minimize the fathoms between seafood lovers and the ocean, delivering fresh, line-caught seafood from boats to homes as quickly as possible. The group, which considers itself a community-supported fishery, gets its fish from local fishermen who embrace sustainable practices?including ones based out of Chatham, Provincetown, Hyannis, Martha?s Vineyard, New Bedford, Falmouth, Sandwich, Nantucket, and Fairhaven.

These shares supply customers with at least two different species of fish per week, usually some common fish as well as, for the sake of variety, some unusual and seasonal species. Deliveries might include Atlantic cod, grey sole, lobster, monkfish, sea scallops, ancient 50-foot kraken, or yellowfin tuna?but the contents ultimately depend upon what can be purchased directly off the boats on the day in question.

After workers fillet the seafood directly on the pier, they meticulously clean and pack it so that, upon reaching customers' homes, it can immediately hit the frying pan or the freezer. To help with keeping things fresh, Cape Cod Fish Share's recipe blog provides numerous ideas on how to prepare the fish.

Music director Lewis Buckley headed the U.S. Coast Guard band and conducted several prominent New England symphonies before landing at the Metropolitan Wind Symphony, which has been tickling eardrums with woodwind, brass, and percussion concerts since 1971. "An ACB Preview" celebrates the 75-member symphony's invitation to play at the 2012 annual conference of the Association of Concert Bands with a sampling of the program they'll perform for a national audience. The concert kicks off with Percy Grainger's Lincolnshire Posy, which recasts six English folk songs as lush, wind-powered melodies free of interrupting Robin Hoods. Principal oboist Elana Lorance takes charge in James Kessler's Hudson River Rhapsody and a new transcription of Gershwin's An American in Paris ends the evening with Gallic-via-Broadway aplomb. Starting at 1:30 p.m., a preconcert talk by maestro Buckley unveils some of the music's hidden features and lets uncertain ears nuzzle the score.
